a radical war of subversion. as howard mentioned there. and lawlessness. this is michele bachmann back again. this was today she was talking about the president's handling of the health care act rollout. here she is live and fresh. >> we've been appalled at the president's actions. they are clearly unconstitutional. you're not a king. you're not a dictator. you can't do whatever you want. he has rewritten the constitution for himself as a part of his effort to fundamentally transform of united states of america. >> you know, sam, i have a good memory about these things. didn't we have a long debate about the health care act? wasn't there a 60-vote majority at one point? there was a majority vote to deal with the numbers problems. it was done quite in broad daylight and passed by our u.s. congress in both houses by majority votes. and of course it was signed by the president in broad daylight. here she is enacting this or putting up this notion somehow there was something done under the table here. something unconstitutional and unknown before this moment. >> sure. well, i think one of the cr

"hardball" starts right now. >>> two days and counting. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in louisville, kentucky. let me start tonight with the big news. close to home news. and to this show. two nights from now president obama will be our guest. yours and mine on this show. he's agreed to sit with me before a big group of college students. that's right. the "hardball" college tour is back big time. and the biggest headliner, the president of the united states. we're going to be hitting my kbigest questions with the president before the students of american university. my questions will be the very ones you and i talk about here every night. this destructive politics we're facing in this country, this inability to strike compromise and how we can fix it, this failure of t
as well, which confirmed this morning that president obama and first lady michelle obama will participate in memorial events. the guest list for his funeral will likely include every living u.s. president able to travel along with dignitaries from around the world and celebrities across the globe today, countless newspapers paying tribute. as president obama says now belongs to the ages. >> we have lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. >> and this morning, on the "today" show, former secretary of state colin powell who attended mandela's inauguration, shared what he meant to him. >> a man who never forget his principles, prepared to go to prison as long as it took in defense of his principles and as he said on a number of occasions, i'm ready to give my life forewhat i believe in. and he triumphed. >> world leaders have been paying tribute including pope francis, who in a telegram writes, since his death was announced there's been celebration and vigils and services in mandela's honor and hundreds
of a rainbow nation. michelle kosinski is live outside mandela's residence. michelle, this has been an all night, all day celebration, joyous celebration of mandela's life. >> it's just been incredible. you go through the crowd and you see the mix of people, all walks of life. we've seen babies and very old, black and white, really all races and faiths. people are gathered along a fence here outside of mandela's property. this morning it was a bare fence. this morning it is covered with flowers. the procession of people up and down the street has been absolutely nonstop. you can hear singing in the background. i will tell you that has not stopped for more than a minute of time today. you can hear it coming in the distance, the wonderful, low, deep, rhythmic sounds of african songs. then they approach and there's a party that breaks out here. everyone breaks out in singing and dancing. that one will leave and another group starts up. a national youth orchestra that came out here. a very harmonious group. some people crying and truly mourning, others celebrating the life of this man. i know
. michelle kaczynski is outside his home. tell us what you are seeing there. >> singing and dancing until at least 3:00 in the morning. even on the second day. i think what immediately strikes you and touches you is the incredible diversity of this crowd. people still coming together with their entire families and their friends. they will come here with a feeling of togetherness of truly moving sense of community. one boy 7 years old, drew a picture of house and trees. he drove here from a tiny village four hours away. she said a school was built. she said because of mandela, her child and the other kids there have a good education. plus, a huge pad of flowers on the gates lead to go mandela's home. people having their own gatherings. they will come here where they feel closer to mandela where he lived as well as closer to each other. >> michelle, we're having a little bit of trouble hearing your audio. i have to tell you what i love is how this nation, their mourning is so joyful. they really seem to be celebrating his life. >> yeah. i think it is part of tradition. it's a part of the wa
first lady michelle obama. >> you can have one of these people as your next door neighbor. call it out. >> i want michelle obama. >> how many want michelle obama? i got four women all with hands up. >> hillary. >> you can't have both! >> none of them wanted president obama as their neighbor, but they wanted michelle obama. republican ad maker and susan page and fred yang and "the washington post" correspondent. dan, i want to start with you. it's not surprising the purpose of the focus group is to get context to the poor poll numbers and the poor reflection that clearly the public has for washington there. what was striking to me was the lack of not knowing what to do next. not knowing how to punish washington. >> that frustration has been out there for several cycles. once we got past 08 was a historic election and one in which people felt good about and maybe the country could turn a corner, what we have seen since then is polarization is worse than ever and the anger at washington is deeper than ever. i think part of this is related to the lack of real recovery for so many people wi
's not just crazy talk as crazy as it may sound. they're talking the legal talk here. congresswoman michele bachmann said on fox today that the president has rewritten the constitution for himself. listen to her. >> he doesn't want to be bound by any law, and that's the rub. the constitution says no man is above the law including the president of the united states. he has rewritten the constitution for himself as a part of his effort to fundamentally transform the united states of america. >> so with these kind of charges, i don't know how she claims he has rewritten it, but it begins the legal basis of trying to have a serious kind of discussion that is outrageous, ryan. >> sure. and she just lives in another world here. you know, in the real world where the rest of us live, there are progressive immigration activists who are, you know, begging the president to slow down on deportations because comprehensive immigration reform can't get through the house. and obama says, look, the laws are on the books. it's my job to carry out these laws. you know, if i could, i would stop these deportati
the beginning of a week-long program of mourning in his memory. let's go right now to nbc's michelle koh zin ski, who's in the middle of it all. michelle, a good evening your time. what are we seeing? >> reporter: hi, alex. right here this was a fence lined with some flowers outside the mandela property. now it has become several large hills full of flowers lined with people. you can imagine in churches around the world today mandela was mentioned. here today people were basically encouraged to do their own thing, to reflect on the melgszage of this champion of freedom. but in enormous numbers, people felt much better gathering together, includingmembers of mandela's family. it had the feeling of a sunday revival. here a few hundred gathered in a tent at mandela's offices, anything but quietly reflective, full of joy. >> we don't mourn quiet. we need to celebrate. we need to celebrate his life. >> reporter: the gospel choir that performed so many times for mandela in life, felt his loss. >> he will come and be telling us to feel at ease, how much he loves us. >> reporter: there were many service
the continued bondage of poverty, depravation, suffering and other discrimination. michelle kosinski is with us outside of nelson mandela's home and the crowds continue to be drawn there, michelle. >> reporter: right. there are hundreds of people out here and the energy of remembrance, mourning, and celebration is powerful. the national youth orchestra just arrived. they've been playing music. one thing you've really felt throughout the day without stopping is that the air has been full of singing. this deep, resonance, the rhythm of african songs. there's been a procession since last night of people of all ages from the very young to the very old, black and white singing and dancing. when you talk to them, you really get a sense of their personal feelings about mandela. one elderly woman said when she thinks of the past, it makes her so sad. but in her mind mandela saw a big light and he never switched it off. and i was talking to a young family. to them it meant they could adopt their children. they're dutch and white and their children are african and black. they said his legacy means they c
-performing countries start to lap us. >> michelle rhee is the ceo and founder of students first and joins us now. michelle, are you surprised by what this new assessment is saying about american students or do you think that this is on track, knowing what you know about where our education system has been going? >> you know, actually it's not a surprise. american kids, their scores have not actually changed since the last time the test was administered, so it's not as if their scores have gone down, that's the problem. the issue is that other countries have leap frogged ahead of us, so you have countries like ireland and poland and as tonia that are scoring higher than we are. so we have become stagnant as a country while other nations are really pushing the envelope and growing at much, much faster rates than we are. >> so we talk about stagnation but the oecd, the organization administering this test found a strong connection between higher test scores and the students' school attendance and punctuality. programs like race to the top and now we see resistance to the common core curriculum, wha
